Ernest Anthony Ellis

ST UNY PARISH CHURCH, Lelant, was full to overflowing for the funeral of Mr Ernest Anthony (Tony) Ellis, of Trevarrack, who has died at West Cornwall Hospital, aged 74.

The service was conducted by the Reverend Harry Burlton and the hymns We Plough The Fields And Scatter and Abide With Me were accompanied by organist, Mr Nigel Baker.

The tribute was given by family friend Mr Hamilton Hawkin, who later joined other members of the Godrevy Singers in a selection of some of Tony's favourite Cornish songs. Interment followed in St Uny Churchyard.

Tony was born in Penzance before moving to Trevarrack where he spent the rest of his life. He married Joyce on January 9, 1960. They later purchased the old Trevarrack School before converting it into the Tyringham Arms, which they ran for many years.

Tony was also well known in farming circles, with son David, for their successful haulage and cattle business.
